Another multi-million dollar mega mosque opens in central Ohio

As the Islamization and third-worlding of Ohio continues.

“It features a prayer area separated by one-way windows that allow women to pray privately behind men…”

War on women anyone? via Columbus: Muslims welcome West Side mosque.

A new mosque on the West Side features ornate chandeliers, plush carpeting, moldings etched with verses from the Quran and spacious washrooms.

The new space for the Abubakar Asiddiq Islamic Center is a far cry from the storefront that the congregation has been leasing, with open ductwork, exposed PVC pipes and a leaking ceiling covered by a tarp.

But when founding member Abukar Arman is asked what makes the new building so special, he turns not to physical amenities but to faith.

It is raising about $2.8 million to pay for the first phase of the project, which includes the 1,200-capacity prayer area and washrooms. It expects to raise about $1.5 million more to add a rooftop dome and minarets, and to finish the second floor with classrooms, offices and a kitchen.

The new space comes in response to the needs of a burgeoning immigrant and Islamic population that also has a number of other mosques in central Ohio bursting at the seams.

“There has been a growing number of immigrants and Muslims moving into the southwest side of Columbus, so it created a great need to have a place, not only a place of worship, but a place of ownership and belonging for our growing community,” said project director Abdoul-Latif Shmohamed.

Likewise, on the North Side, Masjid Ibnu Taymiyah has seen a need for more services as the area’s Somali Muslim population grows. So that congregation purchased property in Clinton Township this month with plans to add a second worship site.

And in Hilliard — about 10 miles from the West Side’s Abubakar Asiddiq — leaders at Noor Islamic Cultural Center are eyeing their own expansion as holiday services this year strained the 2,000-person capacity prayer area, with some worshippers observing from outdoors.

Mouhamed Tarazi, president of the Abubakar Asiddiq board, said his group started in 2004 with a handful of families in a leased storefront on Sullivant Avenue. Ten years later, more than 600 people come to prayers each Friday, and 250 children attend afterschool and weekend Quran classes.

Masjid Ibnu Taymiyah on the North Side serves more than 500 families, compared with the 40 or 50 it served in 2003 when it bought the building it currently uses at 2334 Mock Rd., said director Ahmed Sh Ahmed.

Over in Hilliard, Noor draws about 5,000 people each Friday, said Imran Malik, president of the board that oversees the center. Weekend classes are attended by 900 children, with 300 to 400 turned away each year due to space restrictions.

With its purchase of a former Value City Department Store property at 2035 Innis Rd. for $500,000, Masjid Ibnu Taymiyah seeks to serve Muslims and non-Muslims alike on the city’s North and East sides, Ahmed said.

He said the more-than-350,000-square-foot building will be renovated, with development plans to be finalized after meetings with community members to determine needs.

Hassan Omar, director of the Somali Community Association of Ohio, said the group “couldn’t have found a better building in a better location.”

The association was not involved in the purchase but is giving advice on programs, Omar said. The building will be renovated in phases and likely will feature businesses, conference rooms, classrooms and a sports and indoor recreation area, he said.

Napoleon Bell, executive director of the Columbus Community Relations Commission, said his office has received requests from the growing immigrant and refugee community for gathering spaces.

“Anytime a group purchases a space to be used productively, it is good for the entire city — and not just that specific population,” he said.

In Hilliard, leaders at Noor are pleased to welcome Abubakar Asiddiq to the West Side and hope that it helps meet the demand for Muslim worship and education, Malik said.

“This will be great because we’ll have more channels,” he said. “We are hopeful that more synergy and collaboration can be done not only between Muslim institutions but also non-Muslim and Muslim institutions at large.”

Noor worshippers hail from more than 40 ethnic backgrounds, with Arab nations, Somalia, India and Pakistan largely represented.

Its current 17,400 square feet at 5001 Wilcox Rd. includes a mosque and was opened in 2006. Its expansion plan calls for social-activity space, including a multipurpose/banquet room, gymnasium and classrooms, Malik said.

Although members still must vote on the plan, it’s expected to be built on the current 8-acre site and cost $3 million to $5 million, he said.

The new Abubakar Asiddiq space on about 10 acres on the West Side eventually will offer about 30,000 square feet for prayer services, Quran study, study circles, seminars, social services and youth activities, including soccer. Plans are to open up the space to gatherings by inter-religious and other community groups.

The congregation serves many Somalis but also other immigrants, with increasing numbers from Iraq and Palestine, and Tarazi said the new mosque is drawing Muslims from out of state to the Columbus area.

It features a prayer area separated by one-way windows that allow women to pray privately behind men while still seeing the prayer leader. Calligraphy at the entrance offers a testament of faith in Arabic, translating to “There is no God but God, and Muhammad is his messenger.”


Patrick Poole noted in 2007 that Abukar Arman was one of many terror-linked speakers to appear on Capitol Hill, before the event was canceled. Arman then invited many of the same speakers to appear in Ohio.

Terror-linked CAIR recruiting blacks to Islam in Ferguson, Missouri

We called this out in several other posts where strangely, support for Hamas and ISIS started rearing its head in Ferguson for no apparent reason. It’s clear now: terrorist Hamas-front group CAIR is using race to recruit blacks back to slavery to Islam. h/t WZ

…the Muslims for Ferguson Facebook group, which launched on August 21, the Twitter event invited Muslims everywhere to join in conversation with Imam Omar Suleiman, Imam Dawud Walid, Imam Suhaib Webb and civil rights sharia/jihad activists Linda Sarsour and Mustafa Abdullah.

The group wrote on its Facebook page:

Too many lives have been lost in communities of color because of the criminalization of black and brown bodies — who are being killed and imprisoned and abused because of their dark skin…

We are coming together to say no more Mike Browns, no more John Crawfords, no more Ramarley Grahams, no more Eric Garners, no more Renisha McBrides, no more Trayvon Martins. As Eric Garner said before he was murdered, “It ends today.”

Join the discussion to learn what Islam teaches us about justice and solidarity, and our role in standing up against injustice in our society.

Blacks in the U.S. are just starting to wake up to the failures of Obama and the Democratic party, they should also start learning history and know that Arabs/Muslims have been enslaving blacks for centuries and still do to this day. Not to mention the The Koranic Sanction of Slavery.

Search our archives here or read Atlata Blackstar’s 10 Facts About The Arab Enslavement Of Black People Not Taught In Schools.

Like the liberal Democrats whose position on abortion overwhelmingly kills black babies, so to did Arab/Muslim slavery.

…historians estimate that between A.D. 650 and 1900, 10 to 20 million people were enslaved by Arab slave traders. Others believe over 20 million enslaved Africans alone had been delivered through the trans-Sahara route alone to the Islamic world.

Dr. John Alembellah Azumah in his 2001 book, The Legacy of Arab-Islam in Africa estimates that over 80 million Black people more died en route.

In fact, in Arabic “The word for slave – Abid – became a colloquialism for African [black]. Other words such as Haratin express social inferiority of Africans.”

3-Month Old American Infant Killed by Muslim Terrorist in Jerusalem (video)

Murdered: Chaya Zisel Braun Courtesy of the Family

Murdered: Chaya Zisel Braun Courtesy of the Family

via American Infant Killed in Jerusalem Terror Attack – CBN.com.

A day after a Palestinian terrorist killed an American baby in Jerusalem when he plowed a car into a crowd, masked Palestinians threw rocks at a Jerusalem kindergarten.

Wednesday’s terror attack was captured by a security camera that showed Abdul Rahman al-Shaludi driving off the road and accelerating as he ran over pedestrians waiting for a train.

Three-month-old Chaya Zisel Braun, a U.S. citizen, was killed and seven others wounded in the attack.

Chaya’s grandfather, Shimshon Halperin, told reporters the baby’s parents had tried for years to have a child and had just returned from the Western Wall. Baby Chaya was buried overnight in Jerusalem.

Shaludi, the terrorist, was from the mostly Arab neighborhood of Silwan, also known as the City of David, the original site of biblical Jerusalem.

“The suspect fled the scene,” police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.

“He was shot by police units that responded quickly in the area, and obviously we’re looking at this incident at this moment in time as a strong possibility of a terrorist related incident,” Rosenfeld said.

Recently a number of Jewish families moved into Silwan, sparking protests there.

Media reports said Hamas carried out the attack. Israel blamed Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for partnering with Hamas in a unity government.

“The attack on a mother and a baby is typical of Hamas, President Abbas’ partner in the Palestinian government,” Mark Regev, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s spokesman, said.

 More:

Shaludi’s family had claimed to reporters that the incident was an “accident”, despite Abdelrahman being a member of Hamas with a long record of terrorist activity.

But the latest footage shows with chilling clarity how he drove his car purposefully and seemingly with great control through a narrow stretch of pavement between the Light Rail stop and the tracks beside it.

Another American killed by Muslims and Obama says nothing, as if it didn’t even happen.

Update: Memo from US Consulate refers to Jerusalem jihad terror attack that murdered baby girl as “traffic incident”

FBI WARNING: CAIR Organized by HAMAS (video)

@CAIRNational via United West

In 2008 the Federal Bureau of Investigation warned America that the self-proclaimed “Muslim civil-rights” group, CAIR, was really part of the Palestinian terrorist organization the HAMAS. In fact, as we have proven, CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations actually functions as the “Special Operations Division” (SOD) of the political department of the HAMAS. Part of the CAIR “SOD” functions is to attack with media propaganda any person or organization who analyzes or criticizes CAIR.

For several years now, CAIR has been able to maintain their non-terrorist Islamic “hue,” that is, until they have become a subject of our ground-breaking series, “Enemies of the State.” Stay tuned to this unique series as we send our research investigators deeply into the federal files on CAIR and present factual conclusions that will disrupt, disable and destroy the operations of CAIR/HAMAS USA.

Sam’s Club donates $2,500 to Florida mosque named after military wing of terror group Hamas

via FFA

Sam’s Club donates $2,500 to a mosque that was named after military wing of Hamas, directed by man who pleaded guilty to raising support for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), has been a member of ISNA and hosted CAIR propaganda event.

samsclub-hamas

A Florida Family Association supporter happened to look up at the wall behind the checkout line at the Sam’s Club located at 2021 Brandon Boulevard in Brandon, Florida.  He saw a large photograph of a check made out from Sam’s Club in the amount of $2,500 payable to the Islamic Community of Tampa located in the top left prominent position on the wall.  Florida Family Association snapped a cellphone photograph.   Photographs indicated that no other non-profit organization received more than $500. 

Did Sam’s Club and parent company Wal-Mart know the following when it gave this store’s largest non-profit donation to the Islamic Community of Tampa?  

  • The Islamic Community of Tampa is also known as the Al-Qassam mosque.    The Military Wing of the Palestinian Hamas is called the Al-Qassam Brigade. InvestigativeProject.org reports “The mosque, according to Sami Al-Arian, was named after Izzedin al-Qassam.   Al-Qassam, a Syrian killed fighting the British mandate in 1935, ‘is the main source of inspiration for the Islamic Jihad movement’ Palestinian scholar Ziad Abu Amr wrote in his book, Islamic Fundamentalism in the West Bank and Gaza. ‘The Islamic Jihad’s supporters have elevated him almost to a saintly status.’” 
  • The Hamas rockets fired at Israel are named Qassam rockets.  
  • Sami Al-Arian was indicted in February 2003 on 17 counts under the Patriot Act for allegedly being the leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ).   In 2006, Al-Arian pleaded guilty to one count of conspiring to make or receive contributions of funds, goods or services for the benefit of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and was sentenced to 57 months in prison. 
  • Sami Al-Arian refused to testify before a Federal Grand Jury regarding other Jihad activities.  U.S. District Judge James Moody ruled that Al-Arian must testify. A Virginia District Court held that Sami Al-Arian had no legal basis to refuse to testify. The court held him in civil contempt, and imprisoned him on November 16, 2006.  Sami Al-Arian was released from prison on June 27, 2014 after the United States Department of Justice dropped charges.
  • Sami Al-Arian served as the Chairman of the Islamic Community of Tampa.    
  • The Islamic Community of Tampa has been a member of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and derived their tax exempt status from ISNA.  Sami Al-Arian’s letter written on Islamic Community of Tampa – Masjid al-Qassam stationery stated “We are an affiliated member of the Islamic Society of North America(ISNA) and derive our tax exempt status under 501 C 3 of the IRS code through them.”  Click here for report regarding concerns about ISNA.   
  • The Islamic Community of Tampa hosted a propaganda event for the Council on America Islamic Relations (CAIR Florida) in February 2012.  Click here for a report regarding concerns about CAIR.
  • More information regarding Sami Al-Arian and the Islamic Community of Tampa mosque can be read at FamilySecurityMatters.org and at InvestigativeProject.org 

Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send that voices concern to Sam’s Club officials and parent company Wal-Mart officials regarding Sam’s Club financial support for the Islamic Community of Tampa.

VIDEO: Islam on Campus

Muslim immigrants in South Florida, Summer 2014

Unfortunately, it is happening again, and when Muslims are done with the Jews in the U.S. they will come for the non-Jews in the U.S. They’ve already started.
